Team Three Pair go code complete

And head off for fun in India

Business security measures using SSL

Imagine Cup We're down in Reading at the moment, flying out to India tomorrow morning for the Imagine Cup World Finals.

We've been working hard and finally went as code complete as we are going to get before we head out. All the features we want to show off are fully functional and we've just this minute finished presenting a 20 minute pitch to the guys from Microsoft.

It's looking pretty good, we're happy with it, and we've had some useful last minute feedback on presentation style.

The controller we mentioned in our last blog entry has finally arrived and it's exactly what we wanted. Metro Mark managed to get hold of a Griffin Technology PowerMate User Device, sort of like a BMW i-Drive, and it dropped through our door two days ago.

Within a minute of opening it and installing the accompanying software we had it customised to control the Digital Recovery Environment. Amen for send keys.

The move from the four button interface to a simple dial based system has made the interactions even more user friendly, something we've been striving for.

And so, as we do our last minute packing and stock up on all the Imodium we can find, we'd just like to say thank you for reading our blog and with a bit of luck we'll be back soon with some good news.

Imagine Cup Finals 2006, here we come.
